Key technical features

At the center of the Intel® Edison board is an Intel® Atom 22nm SoC with a dual-core CPU at 500Mhz and a MCU at 100Mhz. This allows the product to collect and preprocess data via the MCU in a low power state and hand the filtered data off to the CPU for analytics. The Intel® Edison board includes 1GB of memory, 4GB of storage and dual-band Wi-Fi and Bluetooth* 4.0 for communications. It supports 40 GPIOs with multiple configuration options.
